A27 ALARM was formed by a group of local residents living close to the route of the Worthing – Lancing A27 when they heard that it was to be upgraded as part of a £15 billion transport infrastructure programme.
Now hundreds of residents in Worthing and Lancing fear such a major upgrade to the road could mean the loss of homes along much of its length. (Click image of Worthing section to enlarge)
Even if your home is not one of those to be demolished, blight will descend on much of the area due to the uncertainty by how much traffic volumes and pollution will increase not to mention the upheaval caused by the massive engineering work. Businesses are also concerned because if major work does go ahead there’s a strong possibility the road might have to be closed so as to complete the works sooner – leading some to predict A27 traffic would have to be diverted through other parts of Worthing while it’s done.
All this has led to calls for a northern bypass option to be considered. However generations had campaigned for the South Downs to be protected from development, finally being rewarded with this iconic area receiving National Park status in 2011 and the strongest protection from any development.
